A staple in every elementary school classroom. I don't remember the illustrations, but I think I had an overactive enough imagination. The story about the girl with the green ribbon was pretty freaky, mainly because it was a "boy meets girl" type of story, but with a macabre twist. Around the same time, the story of La Llorona also gave me nightmares, but I am not sure where I heard it from; it wasn't from this book.

Annie The illustrations are 80 percent of the reason why these stories are scary...!
